Antler Thunderbird by Raymond Tsalate

$ 1,600.00

A Thunderbird carved from a naturally aged tip of a large elk antler with Picasso marble curved horns created & delivered to Sunshine Studio by Ray Tsalate in January of 2020. The eye treatment - both have dark mother-of-pearl rings inlaid around the eyes & one has a variscite eye ball with a lapis dot pupil & the other is Mediterranean coral eyeball with a turquoise dot pupil. The Thunderbird is mounted to a large spiny oyster arrowhead with leather and has 5 birds resting on top - a pink coral, a lapis, a Chinese turquoise, purple wampum then a mother-of-pearl bird - separated from each other with coral beads. Finally - Ray has added a ring of rabbit skin around the head - quite a lovely grouping of materials that add up to an original carving!
